We need multiple participants during worship. We rely on lectors, intercessors, preachers, celebrants, and many more for a Sunday service to go ‘just right.’  During our current season of prevention, many of us are streaming services, some even twice a day, and our congregations have grown into global communities using Facebook Live, YouTube, Instagram Live, […]
